Message Monday - It's summer. Come on over. Driver sober.
Whether you have a planned event and invited guests to your space or if an impromptu party just pops up, if drinking or other substances that can impair are involved, make sure your friends and family make it home safely after the festivities are over.
Here are three things you can do to care for your guests.
- Designate a sober driver for your guests.
- Call a rideshare service for your guests.
- Offer to let your guests crash at your house instead of driving home.
